Tim Gopeesingh says confusion over mask mandate while more serious variants of Covid Virus on the horizon

The population needs to be on its guard as more variants of the Covid 19 virus are on the way that can lead to the deaths of those who contract it!

More than that with the Health Minister confusing the population on the mask mandate problems will arise.

This is according to Former Education Minister Dr Tim Gopeesingh.

He said that comments from Terrence Deyalsingh yesterday on the Health Ministry’s stance on the relaxation of the mask mandate at recent public events are confusing and concerning.

He told News Power Now this morning that the law is clear on the wearing of masks in public and that includes recent events like recent parties at the Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba; Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain and O2 Park, Chaguaramas showed many mask-less patrons partied in close proximity.

When asked whether he felt there would be a spike in Covid positive cases as a result of these large events he was emphatic in his response.

He did share ominous concerns about variants and sub variants of the virus.

He said that persons should not become complacent as the Covid Virus is still a very real threat.

Dr Gopeesingh maintained that based on the literature and science available, there were more variants coming to Trinidad and Tobago which could result in death of those who contracted it.
